You should contact a local personal injury/product liability lawyer in your area. A local lawyer will advise you about the viability of your case. If you missed worked because it didn't look good, you might not have a wage claim. But if the product caused you injury, then you should be able to recover for it IF certain conditions are met (you were using the product properly, you are not unusually susceptible, etc.). When it comes to any personal injury claim, the amount of damages are usually associated with the amount of medical costs that have accrued. If you have small or nominal medical costs, it might not be worth pursuing. Best of luck!
It sounds like a defective product case. There may even be a class action pending with this product. Google the product and see what comes up. You can also go to the FDA web site and see if there has been a recall or complaints. Also, you need to see a doctor to document and treat this condition. Hire a products liability/ personal injury lawyer ASAP. Good Luck!
